‘Top Gun 2: Maverick’ or ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ should be an interesting sequel to an epic 1986 movie. It should have been among us by now on June 26, but Coronavirus blew those plans out of the window. So, Paramount Pictures re-arranged it to a new date. 1986 Top Gun was a hit. It was a source of motivation for a lot of people to become Air Force combats or a fighter pilot. So, when fans came to know that their source of inspiration will get a sequel, it was clear that it caused immense happiness and nostalgia.

What’s exciting about Top Gun 2: Maverick?

Top Gun 2: Maverick is an upcoming action drama film starring Tom Cruise. You have seen him deliver some of the best action sequences in ‘Mission Impossible’ and ‘Knight and Day’, but we can not forget the air stunts he performed in Top Gun. More than thirty years of being navy’s top aviators, Pete (Maverick) Mitchell has been dodging the promotion ever since. When he comes back to train some of the best Top Gun graduates, he comes across ‘Rooster’, his late friend’s son. The movie will explore his deepest fears and show the ultimate sacrifice.

This is the final trailer that shows Maverick coming back to train the best students and future Navy aviators. He’s introduced as one of the finest pilots the program has ever produced. Maverick is no common aviator. He is a legendary exploiter and his teachings will show the students the difference between life and death.

Well, Goose’s memory has never left him. So, his son coming to stand in front of him and challenging him to let go will be the highlight of Maverick. The navy aircrafts used in this movie are Super Hornet F111/A and the F111/B based on the US Navy aircraft carriers.
